Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

As a board-certified nephrologist, I see first-hand the pervasiveness of cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). As a trained epidemiologist and clinical researcher, I also see the lack of evidence available to guide treatment decision-making in CKD. Motivated by these evidence gaps, my research seeks to clarify questions about cardiovascular care in patients with CKD. My research specifically focuses on issues such as blood pressure control, coronary revascularization, and the comparative effectiveness of cardioprotective medications in patients with CKD, with the long-term goal of improving outcomes in these high-risk patients.
